Miniature Food Picnic

P1230915

Miniaturized things always look so adorable, and I’m clearly not the only one who thinks so. When it comes to food, Pinterest is filled with fabulous tutorials and ideas for making gourmet delights. My daughter made the mini picnic offerings above and did her mama proud by including, what I considered, the perfect student meal while living in France. Only thing missing is a bottle of red wine. 

Materials

  • polymer clay eg. Fimo , Sculpey
  • tools eg. toothpick
  • stone for displaying
  • fabric for table cloth

Instructions

1. Think of some miniature foods to make with polymer clay. Toothpicks and other household items can be used to add details. Once you’re ready to bake the items, follow the instructions on the packet. If you don’t want the expense of polymer clay, you can also do this with plasticine.

2. Once, baked, the mini food items can be displayed on a stone, with even a small square of fabric underneath, for that picnic feel. Now all you need to do is add a few ants to complete the picture.

  1. Love the miniatures. They look so realistic. your daughter is very talented.

  2. These are wonderful! I can imagine a little picnic for a family of fairies. They’d take their meal on an acorn cap plate. They’d have a little loaf of bread like the one your daughter made and a side of strawberries – but, alas! – no wine for them either! A tipsy fairy would be too easy prey for a grasshopper – or whatever is out there looking for fairies to snack on!

  3. Miniatures are so adorable. My granddaughter wants to make some for her Little Pet Shop Toys.

  4. What a great idea, love these 🙂

    Thanks for sharing at the weekend blog hop
